HSS Color Challenge #62-Pinkalicious

This weeks Color Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is all about pink.

For my card I started with a Rose Red base and ran it through the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Next, I cut a strip of Pink Pirouette card stock with the Eyelet border punch and adhered it to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I had previously "spritzed" the Very Vanilla piece with the Color Spritzer tool and a Regal Rose marker. I added the image from the Artistic Etchings set to the corners. (HINT: This is only a section of the actual stamp. I was able to show this section only by using my Stampin' Write marker to color in only the area I wanted. The markers allow you much more artistic freedom in these cases.) I added a Basic Pearl to the center of each.

After using the Two-Way Bird Punch to punch the bird from Rose Red card stock and the branch from Old Olive card stock, I stamped a section of a Bliss stamp image onto the bird with Very Vanilla Craft ink and embossed it with Clear Emboss Powder. I added the sentiment, also from the Bliss set, in Soft Suede classic ink and for a finishing touch added a strip of Basic Pearls below it before tying a strip of Striped Pretty In Pink Grosgrain Ribbon around the side of the card.

That's it. I was extremely surprised at how fast the card came together. We'd love for you to join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. Make sure you check out the other amazing designers projects and meet our newest design team member, Krista Jensen.

WOW! Love all the beautiful details. I was on the fence about getting the color spritzer tool but now you've made me want to buy it. The embossing on the bird is awesome.

Lovely card Shannon. Thanks for the reminder on the spritzer. I have it -- I see it on my table and never use it. I love the effect of the spritzer. Great Job!!!!

Shannon, this came out beautifully! I love the sparky embossing on the bird. That little guy is a favorite of mine and you have just inspired me to try this out soon. Such a great detail. The Color Spritzing was the perfect touch, too. Fabulous, in every way! :)
